Romance of the Mission
Mission style conjures up the cultures of Morocco and North Africa, Spain, and Mexico. It blends seamlessly with the artistic genius of southwestern, Native American, and a utopian Californian vision. In looking at the style, it is difficult to remember that the Pueblo Indians first crafted expressions of Spanish Mission architecture under the supervision of Franciscan friars in the 1600s.
Even if the Pueblos didn’t recognize the timeless beauty they created, we recognize it now, and this book artfully puts it into perspective. Picking up where Elmo Baca’s Rio Grande High Style left off, this book focuses solely on Mission style and goes into vivid detail both historical and current. The stylish interiors, beautiful gardens, solid furnishings, and graceful architecture continue to make an impact today.
Elmo Baca is the author of Rio Grande High Style: Furniture Craftsman, Native American Style, Santa Fe Design, and Mabel’s Santa Fe and Taos. A historic preservationist, he has been directly involved in the rehabilitation of twenty buildings listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Currently director of Community Development for the State of New Mexico, he is a frequent contributor to West, Southwest Art, and New Mexico magazines.

Robert Sweeny Residence (Demolished)
"This is a beautiful adaptation of the Italian style of architecture so well suited to the climate of California, and shows the interesting features of this type, incorporated with the Mission ideas as used in this country. The interior is finished throughout in Peruvian mahogany, with heavy beam ceilings. The walls are covered with beautifully decorated tapestry work, and are in harmony with the mahogany furniture and finish. The dining room is in mahogany panel work, and is exceptionally restful and quiet. The entrance hall and stairway lead to a broad landing, also in mahogany. Quiet beauty and refinement is evident in this home."
